The sixth release, so to speak!
It's been over 2 years since the last release, and all I have to show for it are mostly cosmetic changes and bug fixes. I thought I might as well have a so-called release before embarking on an overhaul of Laxkit to abstract it more, making it easier to port, and also making it easier for laxkit elements to communicate with each other.

This is the fifth release of the Laxkit, a C++ X gui toolkit being made with an eye toward making art programs.

This is the fourth release of the Laxkit, a C++ X gui toolkit being made with an eye toward making art programs. The main differences from 0.0.3 are a large number of general fixes, and smoother integration of images.
This is the third release of the Laxkit, a C++ X gui toolkit being made with an eye toward making art programs.
The biggest change in this release is the introduction of Image Patch objects that allow manipulation of images on screen using two dimensional cubic bezier patches.
This release coincides with the release of Laidout version 0.02. It implements linear, radial, and color patch gradients much better than the previous version. Also includes a lot of code cleanup and even more documentation.
The Laxkit is a new X window gui toolkit specifically designed to help make art related software. This is the very first release.
The kit includes interfaces for continuous lines composed of different types of segments, bezier color patch gradients, and more.
